First Lady Esther Lungu has implored women in the country to stand up and pray against bad vices affecting women and girls in various parts of Zambia.

And the First Lady has commended the church for taking care of the underprivileged and vulnerable people in communities especially in remote areas.

Mrs Lungu said women should not only be resolute in performing their daily duties but also pray for the Lord’s spiritual intervention into challenges such as poverty, violence, ritual killings and child abuse which have become an order of the day in the communities.

Mrs. Lungu noted that the church through missionaries and various organisations in the country is doing a good job in helping persons leaving with disabilities and vulnerable people.

She encouraged the church to expend their help to the remotest parts of the country where vulnerable people require their help.

She stated that she had just returned from Luapula where she witnessed the sufferings of vulnerable people who she said will be willing to accept help from the church.

She also praised faith based organisations for empowering women in rural areas saying household economy can only improve if rural women are empowered.

The First Lady was speaking during the Inter-denominational World Day of Prayers International Service held at Anglican Cathedral in Lusaka today.

The First Lady was among hundreds of people who attended the Women’s World Day of Prayer and donated duvets and mealie meal to vulnerable people from various denominations.

And in her Homily, Salvation Army Territorial Commander for Zambia Colonel Margaret Siamooya urged congregants to show brotherhood and care for all people including their enemies like Jesus did when he washed the feet of his followers including Judas who betrayed him.

Col Siamooya stated that Christians should lead by example in their communities by leading an exemplary life which is free from vengeance and segregation.

The Women’s World Day of Prayer is a worldwide movement of many traditions that brings the faithful together to observe a common day of prayer each year.

More than 170 countries participate in an annual day of celebration which brings together people of various races, cultures and traditions sharing in God’s word and worship.

This year’s commemoration were organized by the Salvation Army and prepared by the Bahamas Island under the theme “Jesus said to them, do you know what I have done to you.”

Next year’s Inter-denominational World Day of Prayers Service will be hosted by the United Church of Zambia.

  1. I think aba Ba Ester ebafwaile umwaiche Edgar. How many children does she have from previous marriage(s), and how many children with Edgar? For sure Edgar has more children outside that respectable mother Ester. How can even be undressing aba ba auntie, but Edgar wa bwalwa umwaiche.

    • I know this comment won’t go down well but Edgar must have snatched this woman from one of the bars he frequented. She looks to be a former lady of the night. He must have been very drunk for him to have actually dragged a woman the size of his mother to bed and started siring kids with her, if any.

  2. May god forgive u ,wat beaterness do u have to reach this far,watch yo life’s vry careful if things wil b well for

  3. Religion keeps people docile. The more time people spend on useless prayers, the less they will be interested in politics.
